It is amazing to see how fast and large blog networks can grow with 9rules only having their submission form open for 24 hours they received 1200 sites that are interested in getting a little leafy logo on their site.
Well it is over and done with and to say our expectations were eclipsed would be a huge understatement. Iím not sure any of us expected 1190 sites and if we did we wouldnít admit to it. We are excited and very exhausted from what has been going on over the past 24 hours, so we will keep this entry low key and you can expect a more thorough analysis of Round 5 tomorrow. For now we would like to thank everyone that submitted. We know itís not an easy thing to put your work in front of others for critique, but you took the plunge anyways and for that you deserve our congratulations.
Scrivs and team must be happy with the turnout, while it will take more work for them to process such a large group, I am sure more options to get great sites in the network is never a negative for them. Good luck to all those that submitted. I will be watching eagerly to see who gets in.
